Hmmmm. Didn’t know I was a minority. As a white, Anglo-Saxon protestant, I didn’t vote for Mitt Romney. No way I would vote for such an idiot. He not only failed to connect with me or most of the rest of the staff here at Capitol Hill Blue, he either left us laughing at his incredibly bumbling campaign or shaking our heads at his lackluster, ignorant performance.
“We were convinced we would win,” Romney told “Fox News Sunday” this weekend. “My heart said we were going to win.”
His heart was alone. Nobody that we knew thought he had a chance, even against an failed incumbent President who should have been easy pickings. Romney’s nomination as a candidate was a monumental failure by the rapidly-fading Republican Party but his campaign itself will be fodder for political science classes for what not to do when it comes to running for office.
Let’s add wife Ann Romney to the clueless list.
“I mourn the fact that he’s not (in the White House),” Ann Romney said. “I totally believe if Mitt were there in the office we would not be facing sequestration.”
Memo to Ann: Mitt could not have prevented sequestration because of the gridlocked legislative body called Congress. Replacing one incompetent in the West Wing with another would not have changed that sad fact of life.
Romney says “I still care” when asked about the situation in Washington. Maybe he should have acted that way in the campaign but really caring does not come easy for Romney or anybody else who ran for the job as a Republican or Democrat.
Leadership is a lost art in politics today and not one candidate for office in either the primary season or the final race produced a single candidate who displayed any leadership capability or an ounce of real concern for the problems that face America.
Romney says it “kills him” that he’s not in Washington running the country.
Better him than us. If he were there, it would probably kill the nation…or at least deepen the wounds that are already hemorrhaging America.
